I painted this piece as a response to the elitism present in art, art in its purest form is just being creative. Not everyone has access to the wealth that makes a lot of artists successful, but everyone has an imagination; and no one has a richer imagination than children. I felt as if I wanted to take my artwork back to that, just pure childlike imagination, drawing whatever I felt would put a smile on people’s faces.
